I stayed here for one night with a group of friends and we made good use of the hotel's extensive athletic facilities, though the tennis courts were closed for renovations. The front desk staff was accommodating and very welcoming.

We attended a family party and this was the hotel everyone stayed at. We spent 2 nights. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful with restaurant suggestions, etc. Our first floor room was nice and spacious and appeared to be very clean. AC worked well. Only true complaint is we were gone from about 12:30 until 4:00 and... More

I spent eight nights there during the Special Olympics USA Games. The room overlooked the woods and jogging path, the room was clean spacious, the staff was wonderful and accommodating. The location is quiet yet one exit from Princeton Univ. and train station. Restaurants in area are plentiful once you find them.

Everything about the hotel is wonderful. The hotel is connected to a huge convention center and features racquetball and basketball courts. The pool is larger than most hotel pools and the restaurant featured very customer service oriented staff. I would have given the hotel a 5 but the frint desk staff were not as accommodating. The hotel was booked to... More

I am just a regular guy, who needed a room for his family, and used a service that doesn't tell you what the hotel is until after booking. When I booked, I was impressed with the reviews and recommendations, and Crowne Plaza sounded pretty good. When we pulled up there, the lobby area was spectacular - very impressive. However, we...

We stayed just one night during a road trip. I am extremely picky, and so my husband knew this when booking the hotel and did his research. :) The place is great; well lit, pretty entrance, renovated, clean, nice bath products, friendly check-in.
